    Hi

    I would like to stream a video to my wordpress blog from my dropbox account. I must do something wrong as the video cannot play as I get the error as media uploading. The video type is mp4 and it plays fine on dropbox. Would you be so kind as to provide step by step what I should do? I cannot put link of video neither the blog for confidential reason.

    Thank you so much
    M

    Are you linking to the mp4 directly or the dropbox link? Where are you trying to run this?

    Hi

    I am using the dropbox link. Basically I did the following:
    - I converted the video from vob(dvd) to mp4 container with ACC and h.264 format.
    - I uploaded onto my dropbox account.
    - I took the link of the video on dropbox.
    - I added a new page on wordpress
    - I clicked on "add media", external media, pasted the link and insert in jwplayer
    - Tried to view the page and after some seconds of loading, I got the error.

    What's wrong?
    Thanks

    Can I see where you are trying to run this?

    I really don't understand your question. I tried to run it on a wordpress blog by adding onto a page a link of a video file from dropbox. I urgently needed it so now I just bought a vimeo plus account and everything is sorted. However, since many people may have the same sort of problem, and you says that your player can work with dropbox as server, why don't you write here step by step how a user can stream a video from dropbox to a wordpress blog? It's important to specify the parameters for the mp4 file.

    That would be really helpful for many users and time effective for you instead of answering threads with the same sort of issue.

    Thanks

    Yes, and I want to see a link to where you are trying to do this so I can see what is going on. Can you provide that?
